They were meticulous in their worship of Amen-Re and their adherence to the ancient customs. The world, however, had changed. The isolation that had protected the Old and Middle Kingdoms from warlike neighbors was long gone. — Secrets of the Pharoahs by Ian McMahan  {Oh yeah, my life is THRILLING}

TAG: Wondy, Bre, and Pete

In other news, I saw three movies today while trying to study in the University Union. I saw the last half hour of Home Alone II: Lost in New York (crap), Necessary Roughness (surprisingly good, if predictable) and Picture Perfect (I loved Jay Mohr, but had trouble buying in on Aniston.

    What a great post – I’ll do mine now!

    I too have an issue with Aniston – but can’t put my finger on it. She looks so good but there’s just nothing there. On the plane I saw The Breakup and it was good and sad but somehow it may have been better with some other chick.

    Poor Jen.

    The Author, who was much esteemed in his day, was one Miller, or Mil;l; and we found it recorded of him, as a point of some importance, that he rode a mill-horse whom he called Jeremy Bentham:- But let us glance at the volume itself.
    “Ah!–‘Ability or inability to conceive,’ says Mr. Mill, very properly, ‘is in no case to be received as a criterion of axiomatic truth.’ Now, that this is a palpable truism, no one in his senses will Deny. Not to admit the proposition is to insinuate a charge of variability in Truth itself, whose very title is a synonym of the steadfast.”

    From “Eureka” – The Complete Works of Edgar Allan Poe

    Oh yeah……some nice festive reading
